San Diego Comic Con--The costumes! The celebrities! The stormtroopers!--makes your head spin enough as it is. But it took a trip to a nearby steakhouse for it to blow my mind. This is a Mac 'n' Cheese Martini. This is what the renaissance in American comfort food has come to.

In Los Angeles alone, I've found lobster mac, shittake mac and kobe mac—all have delighted me.

Are we done with capsule coffee makers yet? Sure, they’re easy. But they are not so easy on the environment, and it’s debatable whether they actually make a better cup. Luckily, there’s never been a better time to switch back to the good old reliable drip method – especially when drip coffeemakers have quietly been […]
If there’s one thing that stayed consistent through the last decade or so of tech industry turmoil, it’s the love affair between techies and Linux. There’s just a ton you can do with the OS, and its open-source format means you can customize your rig from the ground up. Apparently not content with that level […]
